Harrisburg Away Trip 2017

BUS_TRIP-2017

Army!

We’re happy to announce the bus is booked and we’re ready to start taking sign ups for our annual trip to Harrisburg. Join us on Saturday August 12th as we take 50 of you across the state for an always memorable night. There’s a lot to play for this year. Not only are the Hounds doing decent and are in the playoff hunt, but the Keystone Cup will still be up for grabs. Not to mention the new Old Guard Shield both teams are competing in. It’s going to be a hell of a night! Tickets for this trip are $40, and if we’re the smooth talkers we think we are, will include your ticket to the game. It’s BYOB, we just ask that you check yourself before you wreck yourself. Anyone puking on the bus gets left at a rest stop….

The Hounds have a quick chance to turn around and rebuild momentum and look to get back to winning ways when they travel to Harrisburg Wednesday night to play the City Islanders. Pittsburgh lost to Louisville Saturday night in a disappointing night at Highmark, where they boys just could not convert on their chances.

Harrisburg is 0-1-2 since being defeated at Highmark Stadium 1-0 late last month, losing to New York and drawing with Charleston and Richmond. Harrisburg sit 12th in the East currently and have not won in 5, important for the Hounds to not let them gain any confidence early. A win for Pittsburgh in this game would already clinch the Keystone Derby Cup only a third of the way through the season, something that has been settled on the last day of the season in the trophy’s first two seasons.

Game 10 Recap: Well Crud

Pittsburgh-Louisville0520_large

The Hound’s three game win and clean sheet streak came to an end on Saturday as they fell to Louisville 1-0. It’s a disappointing result to be sure. The match actually seemed pretty even to me and on paper when you have two teams next to each other in the standings playing similar style soccer with similar form of play during the match, I think a draw would’ve been a fairer result. Unfortunately real life tends to have other plans.

The Hounds midfield continues to be the strongest side of the ball. They had pretty good possession throughout the match and there was some really good build up play. The same can be said of Louisville. The difference maker between the two teams, as you might expect when one team scores and the other doesn’t, was on the attacking side of the…
